    On an unrelated note :

    ITV’s ‘The Championship’ :
    I finally got round to watching this for the first time yesterday(yesterday being 22/10/06)

    Having heard some talk on twtd.co.uk about how bad it was I thought ‘it’ll just be Town fans moaning about being marginalised AGAIN’ BUT.

    Frankly, this programme makes the most of the local news teams on the ITV network look like seasoned stony-eyed pros.

    1) The blatantly disinterested presenters, Andy Townsend no 1 culprit.
    2) ‘Next up, Luton-Leeds see how they got on after the break’ following on from a clip from Kenilworth Road showing ascoreboard displaying the legend ‘Luton 5 Leeds 1′
    3) Then endless wanking on about Leeds and Sunderland. Yes I get it, you’d rather be talking about the ‘big’ clubs and/or Roy Keane. Cheers.
    4) The nasty patronising tone in the introduction to the main game.
    5) The ‘blink and you’ll miss ‘em’ round up of the non-hoghlighted games.
    6) I know it’s called ‘The Championship’ but would a round up of the lower divisions and even Conference be so hard to do?
    7) U2 in the titles music. We all know you’d rather be coverung ManUre. Stop it now.
    8) Have I mentioned Andy Townsend? Christ even Wrighty is more watchable than this biased, perma tanned ‘I’m so proud to be English I won around 50 caps for the Rebublic or Ireland’ dullard.

    RUBBISH. Bring back the old Nationwide League format says I.

    Well, yes, Neil. Even though they used to show it at 2 in the morning on a Tuesday, or whatever ridiculous time it was.
